AADK Spain is an international artistic platform, based in Blanca, Murcia, which aims to develop projects of research and contemporary art creation. It was founded in 2012 by performance artist Abraham Hurtado as a continuation of international artistic network AADK (Aktuelle Architektur Der Kultur). The headquarters of AADK Spain is Centro Negra, a space for implementing different programmes such as: the Residency Programme, Interventions, Contemporary Practices, Sonora and Cartographies. The main interest across all the programmes is to explore the notions of body, spatiality and territory, with a focus on experimentation and process. AADK Spain also work in close collaboration with other artistic and cultural spaces in the Murcia region, Spain and other parts of Europe. The network allows us to promote and facilitate exchange for our visiting artists and their works at the national and international levels.
